A little bit about the team behind Chez Toi
We live in Morzine year round and love being in the mountains. Our aim is to make your holiday more enjoyable and relaxing by taking care of the catering for you so that you can spend more time on the mountains.
We have many years of hospitality and catering experience, built up over the last 20 years, and will do everything we can to make your holiday the best it can be. Please feel free to ask any questions, or contact us on 0033640844961.
Jo, Director – Having worked as part of a front of house team in cafes, bars and restaurants from the age of 16, I have lots of experience managing a business and dealing with customers. I enjoy the fact that so many of our customers are repeat, and we strive to make every experience that best it can be.
I manage all of the bookings and am the main point of contact with guests, and am in charge of all the organisation which I really love.
Pippa, Food Operations Manager – I started my cooking career at 16 working as a KP in a local hotel and I quickly decided cooking was what I want to do so moved to Aberdeen to study professional cookery. Whilst I was studying I worked my way up from commis chef to head chef at a restaurant in the city centre, becoming one of the youngest female head chefs in Aberdeen at the time. After being there for several years I decided that it was time to move on and learn some new skills.
So I headed to France to become a private chef with Chez Toi. I did this for 2 years, before moving up to the position of Food Manager and am now in charge of the menus, ordering and everything to do with food!
The Chefs – Summer 2020
Mike, Steph and Rupert – We joined Chez Toi in February 2020 and we have already made plans to return for a Summer and Winter season. We LOVE it!
But how did we end up here? Well, that is a story that has many twists and turns to it! Have you ever dreamt of selling everything you own and jumping in a VW Camper and going on a road trip?? Well, we did just that. After working long hours as a chef in a hotel and restaurant, it was time to put my energy into something new and combine my passion of food and adventure. This was the birth of our blog, Chefcampers. Documenting our travels across the world, we aspire to meet local food producers and chefs to learn as much about food, as we can. We have cooked for locals on the cliff tops of Portugal and survived the challenging conditions of the Arctic Circle. Rupert our trusty dog has also been along for the ride and often takes charge of sampling new foods and becoming a favourite with anyone he meets.
From a professional kitchen perspective, I am most at home when cooking over open fire, in rural locations. Gaining a following for our adventures, we host secret banquets that showcase what we have learnt along the road. Our last banquet featured a 7-course taster menu! We also feature at food and drink festivals, talking about our adventures and showcasing food demonstrations, you may have seen us on the main stage at the NEC in Birmingham!
So why are we in Morzine now?! For us, Chez Toi captures everything we love about food. Travel, adventure and sharing beautiful dining spaces, with a landscape to match. We firmly believe in the dining experience being memorable and we always aim for that. Chez Toi offers us the chance to keep our campervan wheels turning whilst still feeling like we are part of a massive adventure. The menu is interesting and changes along the way. I often add my ChefCamper flair to a few things, just to tip the hat to our journey so far.
